Most of our shipmates come up to this site, check the headlines and then go away without ever logging in. By doing that they miss some content areas like the photo albums, video clips, and discussin forum. In fact, it's the likely reason that the forum feature just sits there with no activity. PLEASE, I added the forum so that shipmates could ask questions, get answers, and maybe find the trail of old shipmates and friends.
By the end of December another Shipmates ONLY feature will be added - a Blog section.
